Lord, You are My Blessed Assurance — Regardless!

Father, You are my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust. Regardless of the world condition, regardless of the evil plans of man, I find peace because of You — You are my blessed assurance, not the world systems. Your love will never fail me.

When I consider the heavens and the work of Your hands, I am overwhelmed by Your majesty. Indeed, You hold the whole world in Your hands and orchestrate the days of our lives.

Lord, You are the Eternal God, My Refuge in the Chaos

Father, great is Your faithfulness. Your mercy reaches to the heavens and Your love endures forever. You are the eternal God — the same yesterday, today, and forever, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.

I’m so thankful for Your watchcare. You never sleep, nor slumber. Your eyes roam the earth seeking those who love You who need to be strengthened. That would be me, Lord. I need to be encouraged by You.
